  • is part of not only health education classes, but also classroom instruction in subjects such as math, science, language arts, social sciences, andelective subjects;

  • includes enjoyable, developmentally-appropriate, culturally-relevant, participatory activities, such as contests, promotions, taste testing, farm visits, and school gardens;

  • promotes fruits, vegetables, whole grain products, low-fat and fat-free dairy products, healthy food preparation methods, and health-enhancing nutrition practices;

  • emphasizes caloric balance between food intake and energy expenditure (physical activity/exercise);

  • links with school meal programs, other school foods, and nutrition-related community services;

  • teaches media literacy with an emphasis on food marketing; and

Childhood obesity and overweight l.jpg
Childhood Obesity and Overweight

“It starts from home. Every child should learn to cook…it sends the right kind of ramifications through the family. By the time these guys get to 14-16 years they know how to look after themselves and eat well…”

The Press Association Limited. Home News. June 22, 2005

How many parents can teach their

children to cook? 25-30%? Less?

Top Chef Urges Children toSharpen Cookery Skills

“Messages need to be made earlier in life. (Preventing obesity) starts from home. It’s great to see 10-year olds cooking. It sends the right kind of ramifications through the family, making sure they understand what they are eating and knowing how to do it at the same time.”

“Every child should learn how to cook and we need to keep banging on about the basics and not get carried away with the frills.”

The Press Association Ltd. June 22.2005 www.eatwell.gov.uk
